Delta Gamma embraces our motto to "Do Good" by being committed to philanthropy, whether it be to our national philanthropy, our local philanthropy, or those sponsored by others within and without the Greek community. We seize each opportunity that we are given to better ourselves, the community, and the world.
Protecting the gift of sight is one of Delta Gamma's highest priorities. Delta Gamma is the only Panhellenic chapter on the UC Irvine campus with their own foundation, created and founded by Delta Gamma's, benefitting our philanthropy A Service for Sight. This program keeps our charitable focus on financially and emotionally supporting individuals challenged with blindness and visual impairments. Check out just a few of our oppurtunities to DO GOOD!
Every Fall we kick off the school year with a favorite among the Greek community -- Anchorsplash! During this week long event we raise funds at our booth on Ring Road. The week long efforts culminate with our weekend Anchorsplash event at the ARC pool. Fraternities perform synchronized dances and swimming routines that always prove to be crowd pleasers. Last years winners were the gentlemen of Sigma Pi!
A NIGHT FOR SIGHT
Every Spring we host an elegant gala to raise money for our national philanthropy, Service for Sight. We also, recognize our graduating seniors during the gala.! We invite our friends, family, and alumnae to participate in silent auctions and raffles. And each year we are accompanied by sight-seeing dogs from the local puppy raisers club to benefit those who are visually impaired. This always adds to a great evening filled with live entertainment, dinner, and senior awards!
We are thrilled to be one of the few sororities on campus that gets to work hands on with our local philanthropy so extensively. Not only do we raise funds and awareness for Beyond Blindness, but we help out in their classrooms and get to personally interact with their students. We also participate in and volunteer at events they hold throughout the year like their Valentine's Party, Earth Day Celebration or their Annual 5k Walk!
